Good. He deserves to lose it. Maybe his FFL too.
Comes across rather eccentric to tell the truth. Not a good model for responsible gun owners and instructors at all. Guys like that become the posters for antis. Guys like that make the rest of the Texas population look really really bad.
He had opportunity to fix what he had done but chose to dig his heals in and rant
in front to the cameras.
Too late now.
If the Union is once severed, the line of separation will grow wider and wider, and the controversies which are now debated and settled in the halls of legislation will then be tried in fields of battle and determined by the sword.
Well let me start by saying.....,Nevermind.
Sometimes your actions and words have consequences....

We may not condone the remarks from Crokett Keller, but I have a sense that we no longer live in a free, representative democracy and a republic like the fore-fathers invisioned. Why should anyone be punished for speaking his mind and he's religious convictions? If he choses to do so there are consequences, but don't try to censure the person for speaking out. If the libs get offended, so be it, they are suppose to be the all inclusive and tolerant, except when a "right wing extremist" say's something. They (the libs) are not afraid to say anything, but we avoid saying anything that the left does'nt like because we fear having our lives destroyed. They will win in the end if we let them. Keller probably does'nt like what my religion is, but I still defend he's right to free speech. Many of us are walking away from these facts and walking away from the fight. Don't be decived, we're in a fight for the future of this country.
It does'nt change today...My point exactly. We have been loosing our liberties little by little since the 1960's The libs are relentless and keep coming after you, they never give up and they're in our faces and we never hit back.
That is a pretty dangerous stance to be taking...... and ignorant as well.
He paid money and took the class to get his CHL Instructor certificate,this is America and IMHO he has the right to refuse to do business with people he don't like,I believe that people who are offended by his Ad will not seek him out to take his classes,It could very well have a negative effect and he will see the number of people signing up for classes dwindle.
I can guarantee you unlike water and or electric companies he doesn't have a monopoly on CHL licenses,there are probably 50+ Instructors in his area.

There are logical arguments how the change in federal taxation to support the War of 1812 had a deleterious effect on individual and state freedoms. The Revenue Act of 1862 to support the Civil War became the foundation for federal empowerment in our lives. The 16th Amendment in 1913 definitely can be cited as can Prohibition. The New Deal and Great Society initiatives also changed the fundamental role of government and curtails certain freedoms of the citizenry.
We often make a mistake of looking at history like the world began the day we were born. This has all been acted out before in history. The wheel keeps turning.
